Who first used coffee to make a drink?

Who discovered coffee?

Legend has it that the stimulating effects of coffee were first discovered by an Abyssinian goatherd by the name of Kaldi. One day his goats were browsing on coffee berries and started bouncing around off rocks and displaying all the symptoms we're familiar with after one too many coffees. He took some berries back to the village where they were boiled to make a drink. Hey presto - those who drank it found themselves feeling alert and able to stay awake longer.
